You'd be surprised how easy it is to manage storage on NetApps. I never managed it but *knowledgeable* Storage Admins are doing very interesting things with it and with surprising ease.

Plus, mounting from NetApp is actually *cross-platform* (I understand that's important for you) and you don't have to share the same mount point across nodes to shared same storage pool - you can reallocate it dynamically with NetApp even better than with ASM.
